Frank's Philosophy

My current interests involve neuro-plasticity and learning. Many people can learn their way out of pain. I don’t do bodywork or work on body parts. Instead, I work on the integration of whole body actions, for example; someone might present a knee problem, pain, a loss of movement. I look at the posture and disposition of the person and assess their movement blind spots, then help them learn what new actions/movements they could perform that would help restore lost function and alleviate their pain. I work with people in any kind of condition or with any skill set.  I work with athletes, athletic trainers and coaches.  Also, musicians, artists, and people struggling with movement issues stemming from pain problems, injury or aging. I travel nationally and internationally as educational director and trainer for 4 year long Professional Training Programs, but I do have time devoted to my private practice in California and I always welcome new clients.

"I’ve held a private practice in Berkeley, California for over 40 years. Although this makes me sound ancient, luckily years of experience have bred some wisdom."

"As a practitioner myself, I have referred several clients to Frank Wildman. I, and some of his former students refer to him as ‘eagle eye.’ His ability to see what a client needs to learn is unprecedented.
